Karl Taylor unleashes on the current trend known as "parabolic softboxes". Still can't figure out this guy's accent. Unfamiliar British with a large dollop of Aussie?

Your description makes it sound like Kiwi?  However, actually looking at the video, sounds like he is trying to hide an Essex, England accent.

Check out the travel journalist Simon Calder - very similar pattern of speech!

The thing I find hard to place with Karl Taylor is his consonant sounds. If he uses words like "try" or "buy" they come out like "troy" and "boy" which I kind of attribute to either Cockney or Aussie accents, yet he isn't typical of either. Maybe it's a Guernsey accent? I dunno...

A cousin of mine emigrated to New Zealand a couple of years ago and she made me laugh the other day when she related how at Auckland Airport when asking for directions to the check in she thought the attendant was sending her to get some take away chicken. :D
